For All Of You At Odessa PD.

We can only imagine, when they walked through the streets of Heaven

Three heroes heard the singing.."Glad to see you brethren"

We can only imagine, the joy upon their faces

As they were welcomed by all races

Brothers and sisters who'd gone before them

Now singing a welcome home hymn

One day we will go there to join that Heavenly family

No more pain, death or suffering

Just joy and peace for ever, we will have a jubilee.

Rachal, RLG

My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to your wife, children, brothers, family, friends, fellow brother and sister officers, entire department, and also to the citizens whom yourself, and two other fellow officers/Fallen Heros, so honorably gave the ultimate sacrifice for, in serving and protecting. I am always filled with sadness when I come to this site and see another Fallen Heros name has been added. Today I find 3 of you, and that you worked side by side with each other. And to think that one of the first responding officers was your own brother. There really are not any words compassionate enough, or perfect enough, to write, to give you the honor you all deserve. I can promise you and your family, that you will not be forgotten, and you all will always be in my prayers. I know the Angels have taken you all far into the heavens above, where as you will be 10-4 forever more in Gods loving arms. "A Hero does not become a Hero by their death, but by how they lived their life." God Bless you All!!
